When V was attacking Hogwarts etc, and the muggles had as much to lose as the wizards, why didn't the Minister of Magic/Order whomever contact the muggle PM and ask for help? There might have been various protocols in place - break them, things have never been so serious.
They could have sent the Special Air Service to Hogwarts to fortify the location. The death eaters would have walked up into a heavy machine gun crossfire, possibly with artillery support.
I am not just talking about non-muggle equipment etc, just communication. They warned the Prime Minister when Sirius escaped, and this is far more important. I am sure there is a reason for this but I am not sure what it is. Anyone know?
